Does anyone have a strong opinion on it? Is it a very good idea or bad one?

I wonder why this would be needed while ActivityPub exists. I could understand if someone wants a protocol that’s more tight-knit, but you could base that on AP while keeping compatibility…

Choice and flexibility is always a good idea. Can you imagine if someone said ‘What’s the point of GNOME, if KDE exists?’ Everyone has different preferences and there’s no reason why ActivityPub should dominate decentralized social networks.

difference here is i can run KDE apps on Gnome and vice versa.

There is a Matrix/Mastodon bridge, so it probably wouldn’t be too hard to loosely connect Cerulean to Mastodon with that bridge.

Why should ActivityPub exist if Matrix already exists? They’re both general communication protocols. It’s just that the first main application of ActivityPub was microblogging and the first main application of Matrix was chat, but that’s happenstance.

And in the blog post it mentions compatibility, but with the Matrix ecosystem. There’s no reason for them to be compatible with ActivityPub, even if it would be cool.

Interesting concept.

I’m going to wait for federated instances
